There is a hidden population most people have no idea exists. We are 40 million strong. We are the patients who deal with rare/painful/permanent/incurable/intractable pain who are treated as the dregs of society at no fault of our own. There have been 8 million to 10 million patients forced-…

It is my understanding that citizen Donald Trump will possibly be facing civil and or criminal charges in four different jurisdictions: the state of New York, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York, the state of Georgia and the state of Florida.

A letter in Saturday’s edition of The Argus-Press asks the loaded question of readers: “Are we decrying the loss of more than 62 million babies to abortion since Roe v. Wade in 1973?” This letter writer claims she was “saddened” to read a letter in support of contraception and abortion rights.

It saddens me terribly when I read the letter in Thursday’s edition of The Argus-Press. I’m saddened that the writer and other supporters of abortion don’t recognize that with every abortion a life is ended, one that in all probability would otherwise have been born with as much right to par…

Our great nation has had a raging alcohol dependence disorder since the first Europeans arrived on the Mayflower. Early European settlers were known to drink mainly alcoholic beverages, in part because the drinking water supply was typically highly contaminated.

I was saddened to hear that Rush Limbaugh passed away. I remember the first time I ever heard him: 1988. A buddy of mine at work, with whom I shared the same political philosophy, called me one day, with the excitement of a prospector who had just discovered gold.

There are two distinct belief systems that people can choose to adopt in their approach to work. The first and more common approach is to resist all necessary process improvements by attempting to shut down any potential changes with the stale, tired cliche “that’s the way it’s always been done.”

House impeachment managers have two weeks to assemble what will be the easiest prosecution ever presented for any crime. That’s because the finest investigative body in the world — the FBI — will be supplying so much undeniable evidence that a guilty verdict will be indisputable.

I am raising my hand to ask my fellow readers a question: Did you know that donating just $10 to Newspapers in Education will deliver 100 Argus-Press newspapers to local classrooms? I was flabbergasted when I read that in Tuesday’s edition of The Argus-Press.

As I read and reread Mr. Richard Mauer’s Jan. 19 encore (a second reading was necessary to be certain I wasn’t imagining the text) I was once again struck by Managing Editor Dan Basso’s continuing editorial generosity — and the commitment of The Argus-Press to publish all points of view.
